A low chance its a hardware problem with the RealTek hardware on the motherboard. Are your headphones working now? Please follow the steps given below and check if it helps. I have Add Hardware but that's used for installing new hardware. I am just lucky it didn't crash my computer. If that still doesn't fix the problem then there could be unfroseen damage to files.
Disable the default speakers this should set the head set to default , then try a sound. Plug in your headphones and see if they show up. Hi, This is driving me mad now also as soon as I google it there seems to be hundreds of similar problems. Disable the default speakers this should set the head set to default , then try a sound. You could also try the native Windows audio driver. Some versions of it show Headphones as a separate device. But when unplugging the device, the internal speakers will not work properly.
Hope this help you guys. Even the Sony tech support guy did not mention turning on the Bluetooth items you told me to. I really appreciate all your efforts in trying to fix the issue. I also get sound in internal speakers during open or close Skype. See if the sound works with this configuration.
Do you mean the list of playback devices on the Playback tab of the Sound properties? Almost sounds like there is a jack sensing setting, or at least should be somewhere, that isn't working properly. Press the Windows key + the R key, then type devmgmt. Had a look at what passes for a manual, and there wasn't any info I could find regarding a control panel or any other sound card specific controls. Right-click the High Definition Audio Device and select the Uninstall device. But, I really want to thank you for all the time and advice you have gave me.
I found the procedure to pair the headphones maybe you missed something. Check if you have audio through the internal speakers now. However, when I look on the sound control. I am speculating that the headphones worked in Windows 8, but now not working with 8. It seems to be only when I'm calling someone as well, so that's kinda annoying.
You should see something called manage audio devices. I don't know if the registry was changed or what. But, still no sound, there is still a problem. Restart the laptop if prompted. Thing is, when I connect my headphones, the sound works.
Or you can type devmgmt. When I plugged in the headphone into the audio jack, there is no sound. I was able to use the head phone for window 8? That means the jack is working and device is detected when i insert earphone but i am getting no sound. Restart the laptop if prompted. Type into control and hit the Enter key to launch Control Panel.
I get sound through my headphones, but when I disconnect the headphones from the notebook, there is no sound. If you have the time, skills and patience you can update the driver manually. I would like to know why is the headphone disappear from the list? Right-click the sound icon in the notification area and select Playback devices. Go to Control Pannel click on Hardware and Sound click on Sound then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones plug your headphones in then select headphones at the bottom it will say set as default select that!! Although I uninstall Messenger and skype the problem continues. We need to set the headphones as default.
